Exploring the surrounding, Nicole Gigatti reads the language of the city. Every time she moved to a new town she looked for her 'home' in the unknown and left behind places. There she found the memory of different pasts and the possibility of new meanings for the future. Therefor, the process of creation became just as important for the revelation of emotions, linked to the past, as the outcome of the vision for the future.

 

By adding, deleting, putting linear versus dynamic Gigatti explored the uncomfortable clash between the traffic in the streets and the complete peaceful energy she finds in ‘left behind’ places, where the industrial meets nature again to take over.

 

In these artworks she uses a new collage technique. Putting layer on layer spray canned silk paper alternated with Typographic stencilart, expressive paint strokes and smeared paint with large rulers she creates entaglements of her ground elements. The elements of 'nature' and the 'city'

 

Nicole Gigatti is considered to be part of post-vandalism.
